    Hi everyone

    I'm feeling sorry for my little self - a week into my Xenical taking and I've developed constipation:wave_cry::wave_cry:

    I know it's a side effect but I feel like poo - no pun intended :flirt2:

    I've taken a good old dulcolax and now it's just a case of waiting :eek::eek:

    I'm really under calories today as well but there's no chance of me eating anything lol

    Hope everyone else is ok and feeling lighter

    Poor you, I also had this side effect for about 2 weeks but then it seemed to sort itself out. Try and drink lots of water, up your green veggies and try a few prunes. It will pass, just give it time.

    Orlistat, GP advised
    Hi there, my weight wise consultant told me I wasn't eating enough fat and told me to increase it slightly. I was keeping to approx 5g per meal. I am supposed to be having 30g per day and that can vary per meal. So if you have 3g for breakfast 10g for lunch then you can afford to have a bit more for dinner for example.

    Your body does eventually get used to it but do drink plenty of water and eat your fruit !
